There's a full blown meth / hooker operation going on in those dilapidated RVs at the corner of Friar's Road and Old Sea World Drive Right now. I run through there and there's a steady stream of customers.

Two weeks ago saw someone getting the shit fvcked out of them in broad daylight as I ran past. Not sure if the fvckee was male or female.

It was awkward.

They must know the cops will not touch them.

It's bad down her Fecal (see casa's post). I don't mind the new school folks with nice rigs that don't really leave much of a trace but with that invites more of the trash that is a nuisance for people that want to use the "day use" areas.

Not sure if men or women or both?

Either way the sex I saw was doggystyle and aggressive.

Uh bad comparison.

Especially considering Paskowitz was on a discipline and health trip.

#VANLIFE is an instagram trip.

The RV dwellers given the OK are on a cigarettes/drugs/alcohol trip.

I used to live on Muir Ave in OB. east side of sunset cliffs Blvd so technically out of the war zone. This was the early to mid 90s. Fukking choads used to park their camper in front of our house. My roommate used to sneak out the back into the alley and around the block and light that dirt ball mobile up with firecrackers.

Locals should rise up. Problem then. Problem now.

It's the cheap, hard drug usage, that is f**ked up! Bet most of 'em are from outta town too.
Growin' up in Venice Beach a looong time ago, you get used to pep's living different lifestyles.
Cheap, hard~core cheap drugs are really the scourge of society. Not some bohemian who might smoke a lil' bud, hash, wanna surf, work odd jobs, live a cheap, frugal, low environmental footprint life~style that most would rather not do. The hard~core drug users are the problem!

Heck, you boyz do know your surf history, right?
There were surfers livin' on the beach at Malibu in the 1950's when surfing was considered
counter~culture. Here's thee hut, Gidget too, circa '56. Van life has been around for~ever,
just f**k the hard drugs!

PS ~ Heya Casa,
Aren't you goin' to Hawaii for the 1st time soon?
If so, happy surfing, hope you score!

Can you rent a tricked out van for a month of so at a reasonable price?

Traveling and moving this summer and need a place for a month or so - may try the "van life" to save $$

Yes. A few companies out there rent out tricked out vans from soccer mom vans to free candy van options. They're pretty inexpensive travel options.

News like this makes me glad I left California. I lived in OB's war zone for over a decade, I know how this is going to go. I remember hearing firecrackers late at night.... StinkinHippie wasn't the only one doing it!

How tricked out do you want it to be? Ive used Lost Campers a few times and had great experiences. The vehicles are older but inexpensive, beds are decent, have a sink and they throw in extras like camping stove/chairs/storage/bedding/etc.

Ill have to dig more to see if I have any shots. Sierra Mountains fly rodding PBJ and Tecate break (you may have been the one to recommend this epic spot I fished)

But let's not try to give the bums handouts or help them, because "bootstraps".

This is just another sign of how poorly society treats the poor. Nobody should have to live in a car.

Back in the early 80's the condo my GF and I were renting sold out from under us and we had to move pronto.
It was winter and time for the annual Mainland Mex trip.
We packed everything into a mini storage and bailed for 5 weeks to warmer climes.
After we got back it took about a month to find another place so we just stayed at Carp State Beach.
I had a pretty tricked out '68 VW bus and it wasn't too bad. The campground has clean bathrooms and hot showers, we had a camp fire every night, pretty fun.
But after a month we were so over it, especially since we had just spent 5 weeks in the van down south.
Couldn't imagine having to live like that permanently. Sad situation.

I agree.

If you want to live like that than fine but don't bring kids into the world and subject them to that.

Really no different than circumcision, homeschooling, taking your kids to a gun range or a church. All borderline child abuse, except for circumcision which is child abuse.

Then those kids grow up and become parents and do the same to their kids.

We are all results of our parent's stupid ideas.

The lucky ones put it in their stride, the unlucky ones stay bitter for the rest of their lives.

I've been in a van for over 4 years now haven't had any problems really. My thoughts are if your good your good. Now the RVs are an issue and bring on their own problems. But there is still a city ordinance for over sized vehicles. There are plenty of people that do it that work regular jobs and are not bringing attention to themselves. I know I wouldn't be able to get place on my own nor do I want to live with roommates. My plan is to save up as much as I can for the next year and get out of the rat race and start living.

The main question for van life people is: Where do you crap, on the regular? I know that a lot of people have relatively cheap monthly memberships to local YMCAs and 24 Hour Fitness locations, and deal with the parking near said locations. But most do not.

Taking a kid to church or a gun range is child abuse?

You might want to call your local child protective services office and ask them to rattle off the details of their last 10 or 15 cases. It'll give you a different take on what constitutes actual child abuse. A kid being burned with an iron or beat into unconsciousness or sexually assaulted or tied up with wires until they bleed or starved in a closet would, I imagine, feel just fine about going to church or a gun range with a loving, caring parental figure.


I've been banned from better websites than this one.

When I was into Taxidermy I made a wallet out of discarded foreskins.

The beauty of it was that if you rubbed it.. it would turn into a suitcase. :rimshot:

I have a 24hr membership. Use a bottle to piss in and empty at the beach in the morning. There are plenty of bathrooms that are open 24hr if you have a emergency.

I've seen the film and I'm not putting him on a pedestal.
What I'm saying is that surfing and traveling wasn't the worst way to grow up.

There are worse abuses that I listed above that nobody bats an eye about. (not a whataboutism smile2 )

There are so many more fvcked up things that parents do to kids that is considered normal.
I mean look at the reactions to my post. roflmao

Personally, I would prefer surfing my childhood away to going to Jesus Camp, even if it meant having to listen to my parents have sex 😟

Child abuse?

I've seen the film and I'm not putting him on a pedestal.
What I'm saying is that surfing and traveling wasn't the worst way to grow up.

There are worse abuses that I listed above that nobody bats an eye about. (not a whataboutism smile2 )

There are so many more fvcked up things that parents do to kids that is considered normal.
I mean look at the reactions to my post. roflmao

Personally, I would prefer surfing my childhood away to going to Jesus Camp, even if it meant having to listen to my parents have sex &#128543;

Speaking of Jucy vans (and similar backpacker budget campervans) they are often in plague proportions around Noosa. The carpark for the National park is only a small one but doesn't have a limit on parking. So when there's swell parking is a major hassle.
Standard practice is to do laps of it until you get lucky and find someone who's leaving.
Super irritating to see many backpacker vans taking up spaces all day with their occupants lounging around inside since there's plenty of shade from the trees so it's not too hot.
So they go and flail around in the line ups and then chill the rest of the day.
Doing laps you can ask them, "Are you going?" and of course they shake their heads and look all smug.
Almost makes me wish they introduce paid parking like at Byron Bay. That fixed the van life lounge lizard phenomenon. Trouble is if your surfing the outer points at Noosa it's a long way back to feed a meter.

I'm not talking about the living life on the road deal with a family. There's plenty of people who choose to do that and do it right with a family. He was not one of them, his issues actually have nothing to do with where they lived.

And yes a lot of what is considered "normal" is fucked up. I don't disagree with a FEW of your points.

Strange that this appears to be a world wide problem. Here in Maine the French Canadians come down in their vans and take up all the parking at the beach all summer/fall, and even spring now. This year was the first year that it seemed to reach a critical breaking point where locals were talking new ordinances. In theory I support living that type of life out of the rat race. There are just too many people on this planet.

Your posts are generally so ridiculous they deserve no response.

Consider the insults a courtesy.

You got something to back up the above statement?

Your post that is being referred to is beyond stupid. Even for you.

See ycbss response to you. Maybe have someone explain it to you with crayon drawings and arm waving.

Estupido.

You are so conditioned to this shit that you don't even see it as child abuse.

As for circumcision, it's so fvcking bizzare that nobody took a step back and wondered how did it become normal to mutilate baby genitalia in the US. Abortion is a huge deal but once the baby is born adults can have their way with them any way they please.

Same with guns and Jesus camps. 100% loony child abuse.

Just a question, where do vanlifers dispose of their poop bags? I mean the poop bags take about 3-6months to biodegrade. If they put them in the trash cans around beaches it could cause fecal bacteria septic conditions if the cans leak on to the beach. If the bags wash out into the ocean the sea life can choke on poop bags. That is so messed up, no pun intended. Do they keep the poop bags in beer coolers then dump them in a designed dump that has the sanitation facilities to handle the hazardous materials? I would hate to get typhoid or Hep C because some got damn #pooplifer.

It's #weird that we use #hashtags in #everyday_communication now, in #thread_titles and #shit. #Vanlife seems fun as does #boatlife and #mobilehomelife. Has @surfermag done an article on any of those three #alternativelivingspaces?

The # will tag the post in search engines. So if they search for vanlife they will see these posts, likewise if you search for pooplife it will link to vanlife etc... It actually came from IRC, different channels aka subjects would be designated by #<whatever>, then twitter ripped off the idea and then instagram etc... This my interpretation of the history of the #, there may be other reasons why its used too.

Seriously? Who shits in the bag where they live?

There are public toilets at every beach. There are portable chemical toilets. There's a McDonalds and Starbucks on every corner.

And most vanlifers I know belong to big chain gyms where they take care of business.

Ahh, you mean city vanlifers. I was just wondering about those who travel out to remote areas like Big Sur and north of marin county away from state park, KOA, etc.. glamping facilities. RV's have septic tanks that they drain at specific septic facilities. I don't think the typical westfalia mini vans have septic tanks.

So nothing to back up your statement. Just another in a never ending series of unhinged rants. Whod have thunk it.

They must know the cops will not touch them.

It's the cheap, hard drug usage, that is f**ked up! Bet most of 'em are from outta town too.
Growin' up in Venice Beach a looong time ago, you get used to pep's living different lifestyles.
Cheap, hard~core cheap drugs are really the scourge of society. Not some bohemian who might smoke a lil' bud, hash, wanna surf, work odd jobs, live a cheap, frugal, low environmental footprint life~style that most would rather not do. The hard~core drug users are the problem!

Heck, you boyz do know your surf history, right?
There were surfers livin' on the beach at Malibu in the 1950's when surfing was considered
counter~culture. Here's thee hut, Gidget too, circa '56. Van life has been around for~ever,
just f**k the hard drugs!


Link: RIP Terry Tubesteak Tracy, the original Big Kahuna

PS ~ Heya Casa,
Aren't you goin' to Hawaii for the 1st time soon?
If so, happy surfing, hope you score!

As a kid growing up here in Santa Cruz county in the 60's I remember going up to Boulder Creek in the San Lorenzo Valley and every turnout along HWY 9 had a hippy van/commune going on.

The thing is there was a 1/4 of the population then than there is now.

It was a whole new deal. Mostly kids experimenting and trying to make something better.

Today it's the Professional Homeless. The permanently disaffected. Criminal pasts, mentally ill, drug (heroin) addicts. These are not people looking to invent a brave, new world. These are people who will take advantage of anybody, anything if they can get away with it.
